Happy Birthday Edith Massey!

Well she never won an Academy Award or a Golden Globe but came close several times, we just want to wish Edith Massey a Happy Birthday. Edith turned down the role in Kramer vs. Kramer that Meryl Streep later picked up as well as On Golden Pond that Katherine Hepburn took in search of far more in-depth roles.

She’s brought us such amazing characters like “Edie, the Egg Lady” in Pink Flamingos, the lovable “Aunt Ida” in Female Trouble, the sweet “Queen Carlotta” in Desperate Living and of course “Cuddles Kovinsky” in Polyester – yes Edith Massey is all that!
